A federal district court recently struck down the easier pathway employers could use to create association health plans (AHPs). This pathway, also known as Pathway 2 AHPs, was created by the Department of Labor (DOL)’s 2018 final rule expanding the formation rules from previous DOL sub-regulatory guidance. Although employers may no longer rely on forming Pathway 2 AHPs (the decision is currently in the appeals process), they may continue to form AHPs under long-standing DOL guidance unaffected by the district court’s ruling.
